Members of Parliament are questioning how six companies which did not present the lowest bids were awarded tender to supply sanitary towels to school girls, leading to a loss of Sh25 million.

A company such as Konyipad Construction, which emerged number six and quoted Sh23 million, was awarded the tender against the lowest bid of Sh19 million. Raising fraud concerns

The lawmakers linked Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang to Konyipad Construction, which they claimed share the same address to Belion Construction.

“How come two companies -Konyipad and Belion Construction – share the same address and box number?” Mavoko MP Patrick Makau queried in a meeting with Dr Kipsang.

The Eldoret-based company associated with the PS bagged a tender worth Sh23 million.

The six companies that were awarded the tender despite not quoting the lowest price include Nexhom Africa, Imani Holdings, Paula Services, Rossaby Enterprises and Hossib Investments

In his report for the financial year 2016/2017, the Auditor-General said the move by the Ministry of Education to award the tender to the six companies was against the Public Procurement Asset and Disposal Act.
